During the recent launch of Sangobion's Sulong Dugong Pinoy Campaign, I learned that even though I work at night, I am blessed that I'm not anemic. Nevertheless, that is not a reason that I will never have one in the future. I still need to be careful since I know very well that my chances of having anemia are high.

Easy fatigue and loss of energy
Unusually rapid heart beat, particularly with exercise
Shortness of breath and headache, particularly with exercise
Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous Gluconate+Vitamins & Minerals) has always been serious about fighting iron deficiency anemia.
To accomplish this, Sangobion is launching a new campaign, Sulong Dugong Pinoy, and kicked it off with a media launch held recently.
The event featured speakers like the University of Sto. Tomas Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology chairman, Dr. Corazon Zaida N. Gamilla, who discussed the importance of healthy blood in supporting the functions of the body, the prevalence of anemia, its symptoms, and ways to prevent and treat it. Also present was Dr. Christie Monina Nalupta – Director of the Philippine Red Cross - National Blood Services, who graced the event to support Sangobion’s vision of a healthy blood nation.
Meanwhile, it was Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Marketing Director of Merck (makers of Sangobion IRON+), who focused on the brand’s relevance and big plans.
“We have been helping men and women from across the country fight anemia with Sangobion, and I’m happy to say that we’ve been successful. That’s why we think that now is the time to start elevating the brand’s purpose. It’s more than just treating anemia, it’s about maintaining healthy blood to empower every Filipino. Our vision is a blood-healthy Philippines.” Cunanan said of Sangobion’s plans this year.
The launch’s biggest guest was none other than singer Sarah Geronimo, who has been part of the Sangobion family for two years now.
